Hey, wait a minute...!  
A totally random thing I suddenly realized today:

So we did a Secret Santa thing at Lush. We drew names in December, and were supposed to exchange the gifts at the holiday dinner in January. I had to work that night, so I left the gift for my Secret Santa in the back room so someone could take it to the party. I had never worked with the person whose name I drew (so awkward, I knew nothing about her at all!) so I bought a bunch of candy/snacks from the local Japanese store and hoped for the best. I assume she got it, because the next time I was a the store the gift was gone.

But today I just realized that I never got a gift! It makes me wonder:
- Did the person who drew my name drop the ball?
- Was my name not included in the original drawing? (Except it must have been, because there was an even number of little slips of paper.)
- Did someone get me a gift, but since I was not at the party they took it back home with them?
- Did someone get me a gift, and leave it at the store, and someone else took it home? Or, did it get thrown away because I didn't pick it up?

I hope my gift made it to its recipient OK. I never got a thank you from her, so I can only assume it made it into her hands because it wasn't at the store the next time I worked. (If the candies got thrown out in some weird cleaning binge, that'd be irritating. I really didn't have the money to spend on Lush morale-boosting projects.)

Well, whatever. That's waaaaaaaaaay back in the past now. Best to leave it there.
(But seriously, what a random thing to pop into my head.)

what! I would be pissed. sucks that you didn't think about this sooner, it'd be awkward to bring it up now. do you ever work with the girl that you gave the candies to? you should ask her if she enjoyed them. maybe do it in front of other coworkers so you can segue to whatever happened to your gift. you can talk about how bummed you were to miss out on the party and ask everyone what gifts they received.

She doesn't work there anymore. :( She was a temporary holiday worker. That's why I never, ever worked with her.
